“A perfect place to stay in Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

I'm not sure what people are expecting sometimes when they review hotels. No this is not the Ritz, nor is it a destination hotel so if that is what you are expecting you are at the wrong place.

If you are looking for a very clean hotel, in one of the best locations in Paris, at a very reasonable price (by Paris standards), with very helpful staff, close to attractions, museums, shopping, great restaurants, and places where the locals hang out and eat, then this is the place for you. The rooms might be small by American standards, but are not by European standards. The breakfast was more than adequate and when we asked for directions, dinner recommendations, or for anything, the staff was more than helpful.

Next time I am Paris, I will save all of the effort of trying to find a hotel by just booking this again. We stayed here for 5 days, and it met all of our expectations and then some.

Room Tip: Obviously if you can get one at the front where you can look our of your window and see the Arc de T...

Perfect location and close to the Metro, helpful friendly staff, wonderful breakfast! Nice bar and sitting area in the lobby where we would make plans for the day. The beds were comfortable. The room size was small, but the bathroom was large. Would definitely stay here again.

Excellent location next to Arc de Triomphe which I could see from my little balcony. No noise. Champs Elysee a short walk away allowing a fantastic walk to so many landmarks.Several entries to the Metro on the corners. Comfortable room with very large bathroom. Excellent breakfasts, fresh fruit every morning. Reception staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly and were very polite at my efforts at schoolgirl French (from 45 years ago.). Lollies at the reception desk a nice touch. During my stay another Australian seemed to have a problem and it appeared the staff were trying to assist. Coincidentally she was checking out when I did and I heard her say that she was disappointed that the hotel had not helped more, however I was waiting at the reception area for some time and it appeared they were trying to assist her.I do not know the details.
The lounge area and breakfast room is as appears in the photos, very quaint. Lots of cafes in the area and I enjoyed coffees and snacks in "The Beer Station" a few steps away. .Internet wasn't working during my stay.I will definitely book in there again my next visit. Au revoir Cecilia, thanks for a fun stay.

Room Tip: It is definitely worth paying for the Arc de Triomphe view, such a nice moment to stand on the litt...

I stayed at Cecillia with my partner for my Birthday long weekend and I wasn't disappointed ! Its a lovely Boutique hotel and we loved the location -right near the Arc de triomphe,Champs-Élysées, and metro station.We had a room facing the courtyard and it was nice and quiet although the room was small it was clean and comfortable. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful and spoke great English. Breakfast was more than satisfying with a large selection of pastries, cereals,fruit and hams and cheeses.There is a 24 hour bar although during our stay we never saw anyone drinking at night.I would highly recommend this hotel !

we stayed at this hotel Aug20-22nd with my husband while celebrating our 10 year anniversary. We had a room on Mac mahon ave with a view of the arc and it was great. The room wa clean, bigger than i had expected (because you know, Paris hotel rooms are smaller than what we are used to) and a nice big bathroom with bathtub etc. Complimentary continental breakfast was yum and starts early which was nice for us that love exploring cities early in the morning. The staff at the hotel very nice, they all speak english. There is a metro station very close to the hotel. Overall we enjoyed our stay there and I already recommended it to a friend who will go to Paris in a couple of months. I would go back.

Room Tip: Well worth spending a bit extra on a room with a view ;)

An overdue review, for a wonderful, centrally located hotel. Small but lovely rooms, free wifi. Walking distance to the metro and multiple restaurants. Great staff, and excellent buffet breakfast. Very helpful staff.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a room on avenue mc Mahon. It's worth it for the view of the arc de triomphe

Great place to stay in Paris as the Cecilia is close to all the attractions and the metro. Lovely entrance and the lady who greeted us was efficient and friendly. Glad we took the advice of another trip advisor reviewer and requested a room facing the courtyard and not the busy street as it was nice and quiet. Room was clean and bathroom was beautiful and roomy. Took us a while to realise that we needed to lock the door with the key as it was not self locking. Breakfast was included and was in a lovely room although I think we caught the waiter on a bad day as he was a bit grumpy (but efficient - just no smile). Thanks to the lady on the front desk we caught the airport bus just around the corner which saved us lugging bags through the metro. A great hotel, we'd stay again for sure.

Room Tip: Courtyard rooms are nice and quiet
